Abbey Road, Chilcompton, Somerset, BA3

Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
A finely-proportioned detached house set within a fabulous plot approaching one acre, within the sought-after village of Chilcompton. Requiring a scheme of modernisation, with full planning permission for a substantial two-storey extension, the property offers potential to create a stunning home in an enviable position. Four bedrooms, three reception rooms plus a double garage with home office above. No onward chain. EPC Rating E.

At the front of the house is a covered entranceway, with a door opening into a porch with built-in storage. An inner door then continues into a spacious and traditional hall incorporating an attractive herringbone floor, the staircase to the first floor accommodation and further cupboards. Off the main hall is a downstairs WC. To the right of the hall is the main sitting room, which is comfortable in size and dual-aspect, with a bay window to the side and external patio doors opening to the front. There is also a central stone fireplace with an inset wood burning stove.

Across the hall is a separate dining room, with double sliding doors opening into a third reception room. Also dual-aspect, the snug has a further set of patio doors to the front and a window to the side looking out across farmland. A door then continues through into the kitchen/breakfast room, fitted with a range of wooden fronted floor and wall units, an integrated dishwasher, space for a freestanding cooker, a Rayburn and access into a good size timber framed conservatory (with double doors on both sides), a useful utility area and an additional sun room at the rear.

On the first floor, a part-galleried landing has a large window to the rear, which allows in plenty of natural light and takes in the pleasant outlook. There are four bedrooms on this level; three doubles and a generous size single. The first and second bedroom (the latter benefitting from an en-suite shower room) are both dual-aspect with windows to the front and side of the property. Three of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. Completing the accommodation is the family bathroom including a panelled bath, a low level WC, a wash hand basin, a separate shower cubicle and a heated towel rail.

In summary, the property offers a versatility that would suit a wide range of requirements. Planning permission was granted in October 2023, reference number: 2023/1672/HSE, for various extensions to the main residence, both single and double-storey. The existing plans would make a fabulously spacious family home, thoughtfully designed to maximise space, light and flow. Externally, the permission granted also transforms the property aesthetically, with the proposed finish creating a remarkable detached home in what is already a beautiful setting. The added convenience of the village amenities and accessible transport links make this a superb opportunity for a purchaser seeking a property they can make their own.


Entered via double gates, which open into a circular driveway, providing extensive off-road parking and ample room to turn. The driveway then leads to a detached double garage (20'11'' x 20'7''), with two 'up and over' doors, light, power, windows, WC with basin, external door and an enclosed staircase rising to a fantastic home office/studio room above. There is considerable scope for conversion into ancillary accommodation (subject to gaining the necessary consents). Linden Lea is within a generous and established plot of almost one acre (0.94), adjoining neighbouring farmland. The gardens are perfect for families and green-fingered purchasers alike. Surrounded by mature trees and shrubs, enjoying lots of privacy with the gardens separated into two main areas. Directly behind the house is a large area of formal lawn with an expansive patio area, making the most of the delightful rural outlook on the north-western aspect. A pathway then continues through the hedge enclosure to the impressive upper section. Predominantly laid to lawn with a variety of fruit trees, vegetable plots and an array of mature trees, shrubs and planting, this more hidden section of the garden is a true haven, ideal for relaxing and outdoor entertaining. Within this part of the grounds is a timber summerhouse with picnic area, a greenhouse and a garden shed.

Chilcompton is a thriving village approx. 8 miles from the cathedral city of Wells and is close to the nearby towns of Midsomer Norton, Radstock and Shepton Mallet, with an extensive range of shops, supermarkets and amenities easily accessible. Local facilities within the village include a doctors' surgery, two public houses, village hall, petrol station, a large Co-Op convenience store and a 'Good' Ofsted rated primary school. There is a wide selection of schooling options available in the surrounding area, both state and private, with many offering direct bus services. Chilcompton is also well placed for those commuting to both Bath and Bristol.
